Just curious Bob, what church do you attend. See you liked Steven Collins' books too. Disagree on him about identity of Germany, but we'll find out all this iffy stuff at the 2nd coming (including how many camels can fit through the eye of a needle:). I attend a very independent Sabbath/Holy Day observing house-church at present, but am very impressed with the genuine spiritual revival going on within the UCG, and may just end up there, if they can tolerate some of my weird secondary beliefs I've picked up "along the way" since '95. Shalom, Pete Benson

Thanks for visiting my blog, Pete. Glad to hear you're a Sabbath and Holy Day keeper. I noticed you previously attended WWCG. Also, very glad to see you got out with the sabbaths intact. I too have learned a few things from the Messianic Jews as well as SDAs along the way. Since you are in a house-church setting you might consider "Church At Home" done by a former WWCG pastor. Email me for the hyperlink if you're interested. Interesting that you mention UCG as that's where I attend but truth is truth so I listen to a few of the splinter groups as well.

Anyway, keep in touch! And glad you dropped by. ~ Bob

Israel is not Judah.
Collins makes this mistake in his books, all of which I have (signed, I may add) and have read, at least twice.
The jews are not Israelites. Jews descend from Esau, not Jacob.
Rev. 2:9, 3:9, and I Thess. 2:even as they have of the Jews:

15 Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:

Collins has to have the jews as Israelites, as he is married to a jewess. Kerux

I strive to be as the Bereans spoken of in Acts 17:10-11 receiving the word with all readiness of mind, and searching the scriptures daily, whether those things are so. Check up on me in your own bible. Should you find me in error please let me know immediately. We must prove all things (1Thes 5:21) and rightly divide the word of truth (2Tim 2:15) together lest we be deceived. (Matt 24:24)
